We All Live Downstream
We All Live Downstream was published by the independent press MotesBooks in 2009. A multi-genre environmental anthology, We All Live Downstream features contributions from artists, activists and young writers from seventeen states.
There is the fifth-grader who vows to fight the destruction until he's "laid in the ground," the college student who recalls her first time seeing a mountaintop removal site, the best-selling novelist who believes that "to destroy mountains is to spit in the face of God."
This startling volume features writings from celebrated artists such as Wendell Berry, Earl Hamner, Ashley Judd, Silas House, Denise Giardina, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Bobbie Ann Mason, Hal Crowther, Bob Edwards, Erik Reece, Ann Pancake, and many more.
"We All Live Downstream is an extraordinary testimony to the resiliency of Appalachians in the face of a reckless destruction of their mountain communities, streams, and ultimately, their heritage." --The Huffington Post
